How Life Imitates Chess
About this deal
One of the world's most highly regarded strategists uses his mastery of the world's most ancient and subtle game to show listeners how chess's tools can make them more successful in business and in life.
The "glossary" does include a bit of this (not the rules and notation, but it does show the board setup and the meaning of some basic terms).So I was shocked to find myself thoroughly engrossed by Kasparov's book, which is essentially an anatomy and vivisection of his personal genius, and rules he has generalized from that. In fact, for your own pleasure, try and link aspects of your life to chess, I bet you can do it really easily!
This can also be seen as a cursory glance on the world of chess players, their schools, their styles, and their flawed personnalities and their drives too.It’s a bad habit to become over reliant on one skill or way to doing things just because it has in the past worked well for you. Sticking with a plan when you are winning seems simple but it it's easy to become over confident and get caught up on events. Sembrano banalità, quelle dette da Kasparov; avere una strategia di vita, ossia darsi degli obiettivi, e perseguirla. I find Kasparov overtly sympathetic, as he is quite conscious of his quirks and idiosyncrasies, stating open-handed his shortcomings, his failures both in chess and in life, against Anatoly Karpov, against Tigran Petrossian, against Veselin Topalov, his defeat against a small child in a real-time strategy videogame. Crisis really means a turning point, a critical moment when the stakes are high and the outcome uncertain.
Más allá de su capacidad técnica en ajedrez, su sorprendente habilidad comicativa como escritor y visión clara de negocios, Kasparov me maravilló y gratamente sorprendió con su valentía para defender las libertades políticas de su pueblo y oponer resistencia a los abusos del gobierno de Putin.Thanks for such great quotes from the legend that so beautifully represent teachings one can take from chess and implement them in one’s life for significant improvement in it at both the personal and professional levels. This game serves as a testament to my philosophy of preferring time over material, favoring dynamic factors over static factors. Más tarde, el temor por su seguridad personal lo llevó a exiliarse en Nueva York, donde hasta hoy sigue viviendo y odiando a Vladimir Putin. In How Life Imitates Chess Kasparov distills the lessons he learned over a lifetime as a Grandmaster to offer a primer on successful decision-making: how to evaluate opportunities, anticipate the future, devise winning strategies. That's me I've fiinished this post, which is like chess it has an endgame - like life which has death, but then there are more games, just like reincarnation, which is like chess.
In pratica tutto si riconduce alla necessità, nella vita come negli scacchi, di avere una precisa strategia e di perseguirla con tenacia e determinazione . In chess as in life we total up the pluses and minuses in a position, then go to work figuring out how to improve our side of the ledger. In other words Kasporav merely talked about a chess principle, talked about how it applied to his own chess game, then pulled some random example from history that seem to relate to the chess principle he was talking about. If critics and competitors can’t match your results, they will often denigrate the way you achieve them. With candor, wisdom, and humor, Kasparov recounts his victories and his blunders, both from his years as a world-class competitor as well as his new life as a political leader in Russia.I don't think there is enough content for it to be a whole book and I won't be reading it again for sure. Dejando de lado los aspectos más ambiciosos, o más de autoayuda del libro de Kasparov, también tiene pasajes de genuino interés, que son aquellos que le dedica sin más al juego, a su historia, y a las rivalidades que inspiró. All the study and preparation in the world can’t show you what it’s really going to be like in the wild. Richard Feynman, the Nobel laureate physicist believed that playing bongos made him a better physicist. Just about every young star in any field can give credit to a determined parent giving talent a push.
